Low profile no more, Jennifer Lawrence's relationship with Cooke Maroney, 33, is now fully in the spotlight due to the fact that the couple is engaged. After Lawrence was spotted out and about with a sparkly rock on her ring finger, sources confirmed the speculation was true — that diamond ring is most definitely an engagement ring.
While J.Law is a mega-celebrity, her fiancé, on the other hand, is not. So, who is this mysterious future husband of hers? Keep reading for everything we know about Cooke Maroney.
He's an art gallery director
Cooke Maroney is the art gallery director at New York's Gladstone Gallery (the gallery's other location is in Brussels). The contemporary art gallery represents more than 50 artists, with some names including Lena Dunham‘s dad, Carroll Dunham, Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, Ugo Rondinone and Bjork’s ex, Matthew Barney.
He studied at NYU
A true Northeastern, Maroney moved to New York from Vermont to study art history at NYU.
They started dating in June 2018
Page Six reported that Lawrence and Maroney began dating in June 2018, thanks to a little matchmaking from J.Law's bestie, Laura Simpson.
Previously, Lawrence dated actor Nicholas Hoult from 2010 to 2014. She then was linked to Mother! director Darren Aronofsky from November 2016 to October 2017.
Apparently, he likes to party
According to The Cut, a source said Maroney "goes to a lot of art-world parties." But don't worry guys, Lawrence isn't getting legally wed to some party animal. The source continues, "He’s definitely fun-loving but I wouldn’t say he’s out of control. He likes to have fun, a young good new York guy who likes to participate and have fun. When we would hang out we would definitely drink, we would have fun." I think it's safe to conclude Cooke Maroney likes to have fun.
He's on Instagram
I mean, who isn't? (Well, actually J.Law isn't, but that's beside the point.) Before you go stalk his life though, you should probably know that his Instagram is private. Womp. But you can always shoot your shot and click "follow" — let us know how it goes.
Congratulations to the newly engaged couple! We can't wait to learn more.
